We came in fourth or maybe third in all Canada in our category of 2A out of 393 entries.
In the QST listings VE7SAR and VA7SAR were two above above us with both having identical scores.
That seems wrong to my eye and if so, we came third in Canada and 38th overall.
We actually scored more QSOs (1597) but lost on points (6,1o8).
The VE7 scores were 1541 Qs but they got more points 6,256.
First off we’ve got to do a better job at getting the bonus points up. That was my job last year and I could have done a better job.
Can we win first in Canada?We’d need to work 400 more Qs and score 1,110 more points.
I’m not sure that’s doable but we sure could take second place in Canada with a measly 156 more Qs and 148 more points.
So maybe in March we can have our first organizing meeting for our 2015 effort.
We’ll follow that up with a final review during our May meeting and maybe we could take a shot at second place in Canada (and somewhere around top 25 overall in our 2A category.
It’s going to be up to the club members about which category we enter. 2A and 3A are the two most competitive categories and really, aside from my merger effort, we did pretty well.
Thanks to all 21 operators who registered to get on the air and have some fun. And fun is the key ingredient to a great Field Day.
